the budget battles in washington. dennis: thank you, peter barnes. the obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to fix the housing crisis, programs that help the faulting homeowners stay in their homes and refinance underwater mortgages, multibillion-dollar find on banks over alleged foreclosure errors but have those government efforts slowed down recovery they were supposed to help? joining us is former chairman of president obama's council of economic advisers austan goolsbee now professor at the university of chicago school of business. thanks for being with us. what do you say? what you think of these programs? some people in the real business world think it got in a way of recovery. >> that sounds to me a little out there. i think the amount the government can do to fix a $20 trillion market is somewhat limited and we have seen that in -pa lot of areas but to say the efforts taken by the government broadly defined, not the administration but a lot of things done by the fed and others that they actually hurt the housing market is pretty inaccurate. dennis: did it ke

the cuts for a year while delaying the implementation of obama care until 2016. he says that would save money. with me is that congressman, mack thornberry. thanks for joining me. >> you're welcome. >> let's talk sir about what the house has done. it's voted over 30 times to repeal some or all of obama care that. as you know has gone nowhere because senate democrats and the president are not going to go along with it. so what are your expectations? do you really expect democrats to go along with your plan? >> well, i think they should. obviously obama care is not going to be repealed while the president's in office. and at the same time, we know that more than half the states have said they're not going to set up the exchanges that are called for in obama care. so i don't know of anyone who thinks that the federal government is going to be ready to implement the full -- all this program next year. so why not delay it for a couple of years, give the federal government time to get its act together, and at the same time save more than twice the amount of money that would be saved with the

to chicago to attend the funeral of hadiya pendleton, the teen that performed at president obama's inauguration and shot to death several days later. erica. >> kristin welker at the white house, thank you. once again, here is lester. >>> an amazing feat of airmanship and an incredible determination of grit. chances are, you haven't heard about it. 14 months, on a flight from newark to warsaw, carrying many american passengers, an airline pilot faced potential disaster. the plane's wheels were stuck. he saved everyone on board and he is being hailed as the polish sully. in the skies over warsaw, locked polish airlines flight 16 was seconds away from attempting an emergency landing like no other. captain tad brona had spent the last hour and 15 minutes trying to lower its landing gear. all its wheels and braking system, to no avail. he had no choice but to belly flop the plane with its engines acting like the rudders on a sled, to a concrete runway. in the final moments, the passengers were ready for the worst. like the other passengers, greg cohen had his head between his legs. >>

updated on this throughout the day. thanks so much, janice. let's switch over to politics here, days before president obama will deliver his state of the union address that happens on tuesday night. we're getting a new picture of an american public that's somewhat down in the dumps at odds with the government according to brand new fox polls that we have. more than half, 52% of those who responded said that they believe that the worst is still yet to come in this economy. and compared to 40%, hobble th-- who believe that the worst is behind us. and take a look, government spending, 32%. health care is right after that and they disagree with president obama's stance that government doesn't have a spending problem. 83% say, yeah, actually, they do think that there is a big spending problem in this country. so, is the president listening to the people on this? chris stirewalt joins me now, fox news digital power editor and power play on foxnews.com live. how are you. >> excellent. >> and with the storm coming and blue folks out there about the economy. this is a disconnect that's been g
